The Virgin Suicides Jeffrey Eugenides (Warner, $10.99, 1993) The five charismatic Lisbon sisters do, in our startled presence, kill themselves, but there’s not a trace of tabloid sleaze anywhere. The Virgin Suicides takes the dark stuff of Greek tragedy and reworks it into a mesmerizing, eccentric, frequently hilarious American fantasy about the tyranny of unrequited love and the unknowable heart of every family on earth-but especially the family next door. B+
